Minor Triumphs

Today was pretty busy, hence me not posting anything until 11:41PM. Swimming went really poorly today. I started out the workout hungry, started to get heartburn halfway through, and for some reason all the good form I learned the past week completely disappeared.

Since I felt like crap afterwards, I decided to focus on the little triumphs today:
  • I aced another assignment I swore I bombed
  • I touched my toes without bending my knees for the first time in over 22 years
  • I finished an assignment that I procrastinated way too long (see #4 from yesterday's post)
  • I shared a lot of useful information on running with a girl at the PT's office who is planning to start running soon
  • I stuck with the swimming tonight no matter how frustrated I got
  • I have enough self control not to run until Wednesday, despite feeling truly injury free today

Thanks for the swimming tips! I really appreciate it and will have to try catching more water in my mouth (if that's possible. lol).

Congrats on all of your accomplishments. I wouldn't necessarily call them "minor" however.

Have a great weekend!

So what kind of "useful" information was that? Your digits? ;-)

Jess said...

Too bad the swimming didn't go well, but at least you stuck with it!

Oh that Marcy... she is a sneaky one. I also hope that you scored some "digits".
No running until next Wednesday was your gentlemen's agreement with the hip... best stick to it.

Way to focus on the wins. They are nothing to sneeze at. Hang in there. You did hill work with me yesterday :D

I appreciate how cool it is to touch your toes. When I started stretching again it was a cool day when the fingers met the toes. Hang on to that moment - it goes away so quickly when you stop stretching religiously.
